Umajalanta cave, Bolivia

"Umajalanta" should be Quechua word that means: water lost in the darkness of the deepest earth.
It really was dark as a hell here one hundred meters below the ground, so ISO 12800 is used together with headlamp light.
Sõna "Umajalanta" peaks tähendama ketšua keeles paika, kus vesi kaob maapõue pimedusse.
Siin saja meetri sügavusel maa all jõesängis oligi põrgulikult pime, nii et pildistamiseks läks käiku ISO 12800 ja otsmikulambi abistav kiir.

Great work to illuminate the cave and bring back a fantastic photo at very high ISO. We visited a lava cave in Iceland and the feeling of darkness was much the same. Thanks also for the info regarding the tour. Did you book the tour once you were in Bolivia or did you organise it from home before flying out?

@Darkelf Photography: Mostly the tour trace was agreed before departure (although nobody of us had been there earlier), some minor details changed in place. We had great weather and it was not an obstacle, too.
